point this a book written by a catholic from wips business, a jew from virginia, a baptist from california. basically saying we understand that when the american people entrusted us in the majority we dropped the ball and messed up. we spent too much money. we were not good at the wards of the taxpayers and we have to own up for that and we can't let it happen again. and what we are trying to do is go out around america and recruit people to come to congress not to make congress a career but to come and advance a cause. and the cause that we are asking these new recruits around arica runninging for congress is to help us get this country back on track. to advance the principless of economic liberty and fiscal conservatism. these are the things we need to do. and if we are entrusted with a majority again we have to be who we say we are. that is the problem. we committed the biggest sin of them all in politics, hypocrisy. they ran as fiscal conservatives but we didn't necessarily govern like this. >> rose: during the eight years of the bush administration. >> the public majority w

lady called ms. theresa lewis in virginia has... has been in prison seven years and will be executed in three days on charges of killing her husband. now the physician has said that she has psychological problems but the judge disagrees. >> rose: you have done your research well. but let me say with you, because this is even more interesting than the fact that this woman... you are opposed to stoning, are you not? just as a matter of humanity and... as a matter of humanity, you're opposed to stoning anybody. >> ( translated ): as far as ms. mohammedi is concerned, there was no sentencing by stoning. she was an accomplice to the murder of her husband and as such she has a case. now someone in germany claims that she's about to be stoned. that was fundamentally untrue. ow judiciary, too, has denied that it's that. however, the u.s. propaganda just won't let go. so i'd like to ask that you pass the name of ms. theresa lewis and ms. mohammedi and google both names or whatever search engine there is and see how much information you get about ms. mohammedi versus the others. now, if you're a
